LETTER: NHI will raise middle-class tax
Health department's Anban Pillay delusional about National Health Insurance funding and passes ball to the Treasury
The recent cabinet adoption of the National Health Insurance (NHI) Bill has brought about renewed enthusiasm for this massive project. Dr Anban Pillay of the department of health is its promoter and zealot.
Even MDs in the medical insurance industry soft-pedal the obvious threats it poses to their business models. Maybe this is just their public face. Be careful what you wish for.
